Question 2017 Arch Moldings?

I've tried digging around but trying to determine if arch moldings are available w/ the 17' forester-advice?

Thanks. I didn't find any aftermarket 3rd party solutions either...

They have been redesigned and are now available for order. I received something from Subaru stating they are now available and confirmed this with my local dealer.

Id be willing to bet money that this isn't the case. Good luck. Hope it's true.

@hoshie ...Subaru stated they are now in production. It was actually an accessory that was highlighted in their last newsletter. My dealer said he would have them for me in a few weeks as they get into distribution.

I have been in contact with subaru Canada, US, Subaru parts, etc. I put a lot of time trying to get these mouldings. I was told the same things...until I climbed higher and found out they have been scrapped. I'll believe it when I see it (someone who gets them).

I really want them

This is great feedback - hope someone who has additional information can confirm / deny this info. As small as it seems this makes a difference prior to my purchase. Thanks!

There are aftermarket ones available. I have not ordered them and can't speak to how good they are, but here's a link to some on eBay:
ABS plastic Wheel Eyebrow Round Arc for Subaru Forester 2013 2014 2015 2016 year | eBay

Maybe someone who has ordered and installed these can chime in.

ABS plastic Wheel Eyebrow Round Arc for Subaru Forester 2013 2014 2015 2016 year | eBay

I volunteer to be the guinea pig. I ordered these yesterday but they won't be here until late next month. I also emailed the bay seller and asked if they would work on a 2017 Forester XT Touring and the reply was"yes,they are suitable".

We were very disappointed when we ordered our XT in Oct and were told that the wheel well moldings were not available . They still show "coming soon" on the subaruonline parts website. When I contacted them they didn't have any date of when they might be available

I will report back when they arrive as to quality and fit

Cool man. Super interested in seeing what they look like on your 17. I was pizzed that I was told they were available...then discontinued after purchase. Already have a couple chips.

+2 David. Can't wait to hear your thoughts but still hopeful the Suby ones will become available soon as I was told just a few weeks ago.

Subaru Forester Wheel Arch Molding (Part No: E201SSG000)

They are currently in stock on SOP.com! Previously, it said "Coming soon" when I checked the site couple weeks ago. I also just called my local dealer, and they said they'll place a order and it'll come in on Thursday! I hope it is true. Will update
